It also explains your rights in relation to your personal data and how to contact us or a relevant regulator in the event you have a complaint. 

We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal data about you. When we do so we are subject to the UK General Data Protection Regulation (‘UK GDPR’).  

Given the nature of our app and website being catered towards 50 to 70 year olds, we do not expect to collect the personal data of anyone under 13 years old. If you are aware that any personal data of anyone under 13 years old has been shared with our app and website please let us know so that we can delete that data. 

This privacy policy is divided into the following sections:

What this policy applies to 

This privacy policy relates to your use of our app and website only. 

Personal data we collect about you 

The personal data we collect about you depends on the particular activities carried out through our app and website. We will collect and use the following personal data about you: 

  • Your name, address and contact information, including email address and telephone number and any relevant company details. 
  • Any delivery addresses specified for your order or consultation

  • Your height and weight if you choose to give it to us 
  • Information about any medical or health conditions 
  • Details of your marital status 
  • Location data if you choose to give this to us

  • Information about the services we provide to you 
  • Your contact history and purchase history 
  • Information about how you use our app and website 
  • Your responses to surveys, competitions and promotions 

If you do not provide personal data we ask for where it is indicated to be ‘required’ at the point of collection, it will delay or prevent us from providing services to you. 

It is noted that some of this information is of the sort referred to as ‘special category’ data. Special Category data is ‘personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation’. The processing of special category data is subject to restrictions and enhanced duties of care.’ 

Where the data processed by us is special category data (for example your health data), we will rely on the following additional bases for processing that data; namely that it is: 

  • for the purpose of carrying out our obligations and exercising our rights as referenced in our terms and conditions in respect of Autum.Life 
  • to protect your vital interests 
  • for the purposes of preventative or occupational medicine 
  • in order to process personal data which is manifestly made public by you; 
  • for establishing, exercising or defending a legal claim 
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest 

We collect and use this personal data for the purposes described in the section ‘How and why we use your personal data’ below. 

How your personal data is collected 

We collect personal data from you:  

  • directly, when you enter or send us information, such as when you register with us, contact us (including via email), send us feedback, purchase services via our app and website, post material to our app and website and complete customer surveys or participate in competitions via our app and website, and;  
  • indirectly, such as your browsing activity while on our app and website. 

How and why we use your personal data 

Under data protection law, we can only use your personal data if we have a proper reason, e.g.: 

  • where you have given consent 
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations 
  • for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract, or 
  • for our legitimate interests or those of a third party 

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your personal data, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. We will carry out an assessment when relying on legitimate interests, to balance our interests against your own. You can obtain details of this assessment by contacting us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
